For our daughter's birthday, she requested that we rent a movie theater and watch Top Gun: Maverick with her friends and the family.

We chose to rent a theater out at Zeitgeist Zinema in Downtown Duluth.  The perk to using them for a theater rental is you can bring your own DVD or Blu-Ray to watch, so it's super slick.  Dennis and Jamie were our incredibly accommodating hosts for the day, even opening the theater early because the afternoon and evening rental slots were already booked.

Shortly after we arrived and before everyone was seated, there was problem with the copy of the movie we purchased, it would not play.  The staff at the Zinema went out of their way and simply rented the movie for us on a laptop and streamed it so the show could go on as planned.

The theater also offered a great deal for the kiddos which was a soda and small popcorn for just five bucks.  The full concession area was also open for plenty of other options too.

The movie streamed flawlessly with great sound quality, and other than the mess a bunch of 11-year-old kids made which was embarrassing, it was an incredible experience all around.

Rental rates for a theater there are $200 during the week and Sunday for groups of up to 20, and $250 on Friday and Saturday and it goes up from there depending on how many people you want to join.  For the price, and the incredible service from the staff, I'd say it's a tough deal to beat, especially since you can bring whatever you want to watch.
